Fostering for Wolverhampton goes on tour in recruitment drive

Fostering For Wolves 2024

News release from City of Wolverhampton Council dated Friday 19 January 2024

The Fostering for Wolverhampton team will be out and about with their upcoming Recruitment Roadshow from Monday (22 January) to Friday 2 February 2024.

There will be drop-in events in a variety of locations across the city and current foster parents as well as members of the Fostering for Wolverhampton team will be on hand to provide information and answer any questions people have about fostering.

Councillor Chris Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said:

“Giving children and young people the best possible start in life is a priority to the council. That’s exactly what being a foster parent for Wolverhampton is all about.

“Fostering can truly be a life-changing experience, both for foster parents and the young person they care for and, with currently over 200 fantastic fostering households, we are very lucky to have so many dedicated foster parents here in our city.

“But we have more children who need a foster home and so we’d love to hear from people who have both a spare room and of course love in their heart to give the most vulnerable children and young people in our city a family home.”

The upcoming Recruitment Roadshow is the perfect time for people to find out more about Fostering for Wolverhampton. For a detailed list of dates, times and locations, please visit
